Cristiano Ronaldo scored one of the great Champions League goals on Tuesday night, as the 33-year-old inspired his Real Madrid side to a comprehensive 3-0 win over Juventus in Turin.

It took only three minutes for the Portuguese superstar to open the scoring for the Serie A side, deftly prodding home from an Isco centre after some poor Juve defending.

Toni Kroos also went close, courtesy of a stunning long-range hit which came back off the crossbar.

However, just after the hour-mark, Ronaldo produced a moment of sheer magic, executing the most perfect of bicycle kicks to rocket home a Dani Carvajal cross.  An iconic moment if ever there was one…

The goal was so magnificent that even the home fans gave the Madrid star a standing ovation.

Ronaldo’s boss Zinedine Zidane, no stranger to a Champions League cracker himself, was mighty impressed as well.

Any chance Juve had of getting themselves back into the game faded soon after, when Paulo Dybala, already on a yellow card, picked up a second booking for a high challenge on Carvajal.

Down to 10 men, Max Allegri’s side were well and truly beaten and on 72 minutes, full-back Marcelo got himself on the scoresheet, after a one-two with who else but Ronaldo.

The game would end in a 3-0 win for Los Merengues, a result which all but books their place in the semi-finals.

However, the game will be remembered for one of the truly great goals from one of the truly great players.

Incredible stuff from Ronaldo, who, courtesy of that superb brace, becomes the first player in Champions League history to score in 10 consecutive games.

It’s getting ridiculous now.

    Somewhere in LA, a 36 year old Swede just crushed a glass

    Beating the world’s best goalkeeper is no mean achievement. The first goal by CR7 was a beauty. The second was more than that. Congratulations to Monsieur Zinedine Zidane and his galacticos.

  3. Rob says:

    I hate to be a downer and Im not being a Ronaldo hater, it was a Magnificant goal, but why wasn’t it called dangerous play for high feet? It would have been anywhere else on the field as he nearly took the defenders head off.

  4. Nuno says:

    I know it was a powerful kick, but still I doubt it would “take the defender’s head off” when that was more than a meter away from the foot. If the video is too fast just, just look at the pictures. If the defender actually tried to play the ball, agree it should be dangerous play, but like this he was too far to actually be dangerous play.
